      Africa Committee Presents

      The Role of Media in Developing the Rule of Law in Africa

      The media plays an important role in our lives. It shapes our
      thoughts and opinions on an issue, how we perceive people and places,
      and can influence how we react to issues when they occur. Does the
      same hold true for the rule of law? Does dedicating more attention to
      negative issues such as Mugabe, Sudan, and AIDS over positive issues
      such as Malawi, Ghana, and the successful transitions of
      power/enforcement of groundbreaking decisions throughout the continent
      have an impact on how the rule of law in perceived both inside and
      outside those countries/regions? Please join us for a lively panel
      discussion on this and other issues as we explore the media's impact
      in developing the rule of law in Africa.
